Discover Nana Plaza and Soi Cowboy in Sukhumvit nightlife - Bangkok
During its early hours, Sukhumvit Road is a highly urbanized cosmopolitan and shopping center in Bangkok. However, when the sun starts to set and the sky turns to dusk it transforms into a vibrant pathway riddled with go-go bars and clubs. This popular red light district has a lot of establishments to turn up the night, but among all of those places, The Nana Entertainment Plaza and So iCowboy are some of the hottest spots in Sukhumvit that you should definitely not miss.
Entering The Nana Entertainment Plaza can get a little intimidating due to the different locations you can sit down and have a drink. But it is because of all the varying colors of neon lights brightening up the area, the atmosphere will help snap you out from all your worries. Along the entrances of the establishments, you are greeted with street vendors, all ready to serve you the local favorites such as som tum and kai tod. The Soi Cowboy, on the other hand, is much brighter and has a carnival feel to it, and yet, it is more laid-back. Here, you can have a drink for only 100 to 150 Baht, and chat with both locals and foreigners alike. Everyone here just wants you to relax and have a good time.
The easiest way to get to any of these areas is to take the MRT at Hua Lamphong station, and head towards the Sukhumvit Station. Soi Cowboy is located between Asoke Road and Sukhumvit Soi 23. The Nana Entertainment Plaza is just minutes away and is just a short walk from this location.
The usual opening hours of entertainment establishments in Bangkok, Sukhumvit Road is around 7:00 pm to 1:00 am, so Trip Guru suggests that if you want to experience a night in Bangkok like no other, arrive as early as possible. It is also wise to bring a few friends along to keep you safe, for these areas are known to get rowdy, and bring extra cash for the entrance fees of the clubs vary.
